i have seen a couple of posts about cutting out a port in between the 6x9's and putting a fabed grill insert, well my questions is to the people who have done this. will that allow too much moisture to build up in the trunk making the trunk lid "sweat" onto speakers and other things in your trunk. i have noticed my trunk lid "sweats" when it REALLY cold and warm air gets back there, something about there are vents in the trunk to allow air to push out moisture or something, and they might be clogged. anyways i want to do this but i dont know if it will hurt or help, any suggestions?

hmmm... good question. I've got my rear deck ported and I did notice the trunk "sweating" on the outside but never really made the connection or thought too much about it until now. I haven't had anything inside the trunk get wet though... no moisture or condensation or anything that I could tell. You got me curious now though... anybody else??

No problems here. Have you checked for leaks? If your system is beating really hard you can bend the trunk lid and it wont seal correctly. Happen to me about 2 years back. Just my .02

Interesting read. Would it be possible to build some sort of catch device under the deck and add some desicant or something?

We use desicant bags where I work to keep moisture, condensation, and corrosion from attacking the flight hardware all the time.

Jayo... bent trunk lid? How much power were you pushing? Damn dog? I aint mad at cha. Just the way I like it.

I need to know before I add all the power and woofers ported through my rear deck. I did and have not had any of those problem in my Riviera. Hmm.

I got my installer from cali on standby. Looking to hook up the Impala sometime this spring. No. The music will not be up and running the way I like it for Daytona but it will have some tunes.

Porting it thru the back deck is the only way to stop this from happening. Both times it happen to me the subs were in a pre-fab box pointing the subs right at the rear.

1st time,

2 Kicker comp vr's 15's on a BD1001 in a ez-db box

2nd time

3 Alphasonic 15's on a BXI2006D in a sealed box.

My deck lid is bent to hell and will need to be replaced.

I have the port in the rear deck. If it is sealed off correctly, you shouldn't get any condensation in the trunk. Speaking from experience, if you are getting condensation in the trunk, it is due to a leak in the trunk area, not from the cabin.


It is a much more effecient way to go for sound as well. It not only gives you all your bass but it also keeps your trunk in one piece, as JAYO can attest to that.... lol

Depends on how you do it. If you just throw them in a box, and cut a hole in the rear deck, you'll still get trunk rattle but you'll hear your bass a lot better. If you port it through the rear deck, the size/depth of the port is important
